September 2004 - Wyandotte Municipal Services (WMS), a utility member of American Municipal Power-Ohio (AMP-Ohio), is offering a green power option to its electricity customers in partnership with Green Mountain Energy Company. Under the Nature's Energy program, WMS customers can purchase renewable energy derived from wind, landfill gas and hydroelectric power sources for 100% of their electricity needs. The added cost of the renewable energy is 1.5¢/kWh or about $8 to $10 per month for an average residential customer. Commercial customers can also participate in the program by purchasing renewable energy in one-MWh increments for the same 1.5¢/kWh premium.
A portion of the power for the program comes from the AMP-Ohio/Green Mountain Energy wind farm located near the city of Bowling Green. AMP-Ohio recently announced that two new 1.8-MW wind turbines would be added to the site this year, which will bring the total project capacity to 7.2 MW.
